Wrong, it's live and kicking.  What am I reading this on, Scotch mist?

Of course people should be pointed to the Windows list at 
gmane.comp.python.windows but that will not stop them asking the same 
moronic question that has been asked repeatedly for the last 16 months, 
"I get api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing, what do I do about 
it?".  Haven't they heard of search engines?

My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask
what you can do for our language.
